    You might want to search through the threads for this topic since this has been discussed previously on other threads.

    For me, I used the Hershey Manual and Boards By the Numbers board review software ( in preparation for the ABPS Foot Surgery and Reconstructive Rearfoot Surgery Board exams. I also attended the Goldfarb Foundation Board Review Course and attended weekly resident evening lectures at a local Philadelphia residency program, where there was a significant amount of board review materials presented to the residents. These weekly evening lectures are opened to all Podiatry residents and students in the greater Philadelphia area. If you want more info about the lectures, feel free to PM me. If you do take the Goldfarb Foundation Board Review course, you will get both the Hershey Manual and Boards By The Numbers board review software as part of your course tuition. Dr. Larry Goss also has put together some board review materials (both oral and written) on a few CDs (called Mock Oral and Written Exam CDs) which people can purchase at You can also purchase the Hershey Manual from that goldfarb foundation website. Lastly, I used various textbooks (Mcglamry's, Mann/Coughlin, Myerson, Gunman, Gerbert, etc...) to go over topics that I was weak on.

    Several of my friends have used Podiatry Institute PI Manual and Presby Manual for review. Some have taken Board review courses offered by other Podiatry schools, Podiatry meetings, Stryker, etc.... Lastly, some people have used the PRESENT Online Board Review ( and the PodiatryPrep board review software (

    For ABPOPPM, there is a review text that one can buy. It is called Review Text in Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine. You can purchase it at You can get this book for free if you become a member of ACFAOM (including residents).

    Lastly, there is suppose to be another board review and questions online system. I am not sure when it will be available for use. You can check it out at:

    I hope that this helps.
